Should I not be afraid to ask for a loan?
Like all decisions related to personal economics, asking for a credit must also be thought through to understand if it really is necessary to do it or not.
Feeling a sense of uncertainty in front of the idea of acquiring the responsibility of responding to a loan is natural, bearing in mind that you can not simply give up paying for it. There is a certain terror with regard to asking for a loan, either because it is ‘framed’ by those who request it, the interests are high or sometimes, it does not solve the need that was thought to be satisfied by asking for it.
Of course, it is not a simple decision but it does not imply that this is something to which we should shun. So, should I or should I not be afraid to ask for a loan? The answer is no.
Asking for a loan has – as everything in life – its pros and cons, it is logical, and precisely knowing that, it does not present itself in a dangerous way. Three points we consider essential to lose the fear of asking for a loan.
The most important thing is to first thoroughly analyze the situation to determine if it is necessary to ask for a loan. If you can really improve that economic condition without having to acquire a future debt, then of course, you should not ask for a loan.
If you really need to ask for it, then you have to be certain that later you will be able to meet the economic obligations that demand to pay for it.
Finally, it is not just about paying and paying, but also about how you plan to do it. An acquired credit may not be the only economic responsibility you have, so before asking for it, consider how you could pay it taking into account installments, time, interest and so on.
We understand that asking for a loan should not be a decision that is taken lightly, but neither should it unleash that fear that is generated if the three small points previously mentioned are taken into consideration.
